Summer Vacation Jobs

Why just sit at home when you can go to work?

      Imagine you just finished school and you are so excited to just be lazy the whole summer and hang out with friends. For example, just lying in bed all day, sitting on the pool deck while drinking a smoothie, not having to do homework, or even going to the beach. Although that does sound nice, wouldn’t that get kind of tiring or annoying? Doing the same thing repeatedly? Sleep, go to the pool, eat, go to bed. Sleep, go to the pool, eat, go to bed. It sounds pretty boring to me. Instead of just being lazy the whole summer, don’t you want to make some money to buy the new shoes you wanted all year long or even the newest phone? Well, all you need to do is get a job.  

      There are many jobs in the Venice/North port Florida area that fourteen-year-old or fifteen-year-old can work at. One fun job located in different locations in Venice is Publix. You can start working at Publix with a minimum age of fourteen. And if you don’t mind a little drive, there is a Chick-fil-a located in Sarasota with a minimum working age of fourteen. In my opinion Chick-fil-a is the best fast-food place ever. Or if you prefer KFC Chicken, maybe you would like to work there. You can work at KFC at the age as young as fourteen. But if you are not into the fast-food area of jobs, maybe you want to work at Target. Target requires a 14 or 15 age to start working there. Or if you don’t want to work for someone, you can start your own business. For example, dog sitting, house cleaning, candle making, making jewelry, or even babysitting if you like kids.  

      You see, there are many fun jobs out there, you just have to look around and see what you like. And who knows, you might really enjoy having a job. Now let us make the summer money making begin!
